When I got engaged, my sister got engaged and then scheduled her wedding for a month before mine. My whole life she’s been trying to upstage me. Well, last week she did it again. I mentioned I was going to get porcelain veneers a couple of months ago. The next thing I know she shows up at my house with veneers on her teeth! The only consolation I have is that they’re a little bulky for my taste. At least I have a chance of getting better veneers than her. Which brand should I get that won’t look bulky?

Rather than try to research a brand, my suggestion is that you research cosmetic dentists. A great cosmetic dentist can make almost any brand look gorgeous. Plus, they’ll know which brands work best with different smile types.
I suspect your sister got a no-prep type of porcelain veneer. They don’t work for all smiles and can make your teeth look bulky.
An easy way to find a great cosmetic dentist is to go to the mynewsmile.com website. They recommend highly skilled and artistic cosmetic dentists in each state. You’re fortunate to live in a metropolitan area. Some patients in rural areas have to drive several hours to get to a great dentist. That being said, if there isn’t one listed for Brooklyn, but there is for one of the other boroughs, it wouldn’t be worth the time to travel there.
